We also embroidered the names of the angels - Faith, Hope, and Love.
We then added 3.5" wide borders. For the borders we used light blue fabric with clouds and silver and gold stars.
Next we placed the backing, covered it with a medium-loft polyester batting and covered the two layers with the embroidered top. We pinned all three layers together and quilted it to imitate the shape of clouds. We finished the raw edges with straight-grain binding.
These are photos sent in by one of our customers, Linda McCoy. This was her first attempt at free-hand quilting around the designs. The results are very nice!
